Baby Bam Burgers

These simple little burgers are great for kids and adults and are sure to be a hit with a big crowd. Recipe is easily adapted for outdoor grilling for your end-of-summer party: 2 to 3 minutes on a hot grill should do the trick.


  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: Twelve 2-ounce burgers


  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Baby Bam
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 small hamburger buns or small dinner rolls


  • Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or wax paper and wash your hands.

  • Place the meat in a large mixing bowl. Add the onion, garlic, ketchup, relish, mustard, Baby Bam, salt, and pepper, and mix with your hands until all the ingredients are well incorporated.

  • Form the meat into patties, using about 1/4 cup for each. Place the formed patties on the baking sheet. Wash your hands really well with warm, soapy water before continuing.

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Carefully place 3 or 4 patties in the skillet, being careful not to overcrowd them. Using a plastic turner, turn the burgers over after 4 minutes. Make sure to turn them gently to avoid hot grease splatters! Cook the burgers on the second side for 3 minutes.

  • Using an oven mitt or pot holder, remove the burgers from the skillet and place on a platter or large plate while the other burgers are cooking. Repeat with the remaining patties.

  • Serve on hamburger buns, topped with accompaniments if desired.

  • Optional Accompaniments: Mayonnaise, Mustard, Ketchup, Onion slices, Pickles, Pickle relish, Tomato slices, and Lettuce
